Nerys, although not as old I often feel as if life is just going nowhere.
My quacks have taken me off my medication as it was causing stomach bleeds and nausea.
Funny thing is I feel better, I still find walking very painful so taking the doctors advice I have been cycling, my joints make strange noises but are moving freely now.
I have to lay off the medication for 10 weeks and then go for an MRI scan to check if there are any issues.
So keep your pecker up lass, Alice is your strong right arm and I'm sure she doesn't mind you leaning on her.
Just make sure you get better soon.
Best regards to you and Alice, stay safe and hope you feel better soon, Colin and Caroline.
